Lovely house in a very nice enviroment

  • 5 of 5

The house is very cozy, charming, spacious, well maintained, clean and tidy. It's surrounded by a beautiful garden with flowers, palm trees, fruit trees and large old trees . In the morning you can enjoy your breakfast on the covered terrace in, during the day you can relaxe in the sun or swimmingpool in the garden and in the evening you can enjoy your homemade pizza from a real pizza oven outside the house.

The view of Lake Maggiore is magnificent.

It's a very nice place for a fantastic holiday.

Greetings, Lizzy (The Netherlands)

Gemütliches Haus mit wunderbarem Garten

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche mit 6 Personen im Casa Portofino verbracht. Besonders erwähnenswert ist sicher der sehr gepflegte Garten mit traumhafter Aussicht. Im Haus ist alles vorhanden, was man für einen Aufenthalt braucht: Küchenutensilien jeglicher Art, ein Kaffeevollautomat, Waschmaschine und ein Fernseher mit den gängigen deutschen Sendern (den wir aber eigentlich nie gebraucht haben). Alle Räume sind schön und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Betten und die Bettwäsche sind sehr sauber! Zwei Schlafzimmer verfügen über Klimaanlage. Auch den Pizzaofen haben wir genutzt - ein Traum!

Der Weg zum Strand führt bergab durch den Garten, dann durch ein Tor und unter der Eisenbahnbrücke hindurch. Wenn man sich ein paar Meter links hält (bis nach der nächsten Leitplanke) führt linker Hand ein trockenes Bachbett an ein sehr ruhiges Fleckchen Strand, an dem wir jeweils alleine waren.

Wir haben meist den ganzen Tag im Garten verbracht - Frühstück und Abendessen auf der überdachten Terrasse an einem großen Tisch mit 8 Sitzplätzen. Der Blick auf den Lago Maggiore ist einzigartig - auch aus allen Zimmern!. Loungemöbel und Liegestühle sind genügend vorhanden. Für uns ein rundum perfektes Urlaubsdomizil!

Ein herzliches Dankeschön an Barbara für die nette Betreuung. Ci vediamo :)

Traumhaftes Haus - perfekt für einen Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Mit echtem Himmels- und Naturkino hat uns dieses Haus in unserem Urlaub verwöhnt. Der Ausblick ist traumhaft, der Garten lud die drei Generationen zum gemeinsamen Wikingerspiel ein, die Terasse hat unser Urlaubsgefühl vor Ort vervollständigt. Das Haus selbst ist geräumig, toll möbliert, bestens ausgestattet und das Eltern-Schlafzimmer hat sehr gute Fenster, so dass die direkt am Grundstück verlaufende Bahnlinie den Urlaub nicht beeinträchtigt hat. Das Haus ist sehr gut geeignet auch für Großfamilien mit Kinder ab ca. 4-5 Jahren.

Sowohl die Gastgeberin als auch die Ansprechpartnerin vor Ort sind sehr hilfsbereit, entgegenkommend und standen uns bei dem leider eingetretenen Krankheitsfall der Kinder unterstützend zur Seite. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Fantastisch huis op een schitterende locatie aan het Lago Maggiore

  • 4 of 5

De woning is zeer comfortabel en heeft alles wat je maar wenst.

De tuin direct aan het meer (de woning ligt iets hoger) is voorzien van heerlijke ligbedden en diverse zitjes en een

heerlijke eettafel bij het overdekte terras.

Het is heerlijk om alleen maar in de tuin te zitten, zeker als je mooi weer hebt gehad zoals wij, maar er zijn genoeg

leuke plaatsen in de buurt om een bezoekje te brengen.

De ontvangst door Barbara, de contactpersoon daar, die de sleutel en rondleiding geeft was zeer vriendelijk.

Ook was zij zeer behulpzaam en heeft ons (voor) gereden naar het treinstation om mijn zus op te halen!

Wij hebben onze vakantie hier en het huis als top ervaren !

Owner's Response: Dank jullie wel voor de review! Ik ben altijd blij als ik lees dat er genoten is. Zelf zit ik ook graag uren naar het Lago te kijken vanuit de tuin. Hopelijk tot een volgende keer!!

small, stones (as everywhere around the lake)
Car: necessary

A place to relax, with lots of space and the most wonderful views! If you like the Italian way of living, the lake and the mountains this is the right place for you! Only 40 kilometres from the airport Malpensa in Milan where many charters land (also cheap charter carriers eg Ryan Air and Easyjet)!

Only 50 minutes from downtown Milan you will find Caldè, a small village with the small harbour (walking distance form Casa Nostra) at the lakeside of Lago Maggiore.

The whole year through this place looks wonderful! The winter season with its peace and quietness and the beautiful mountains with their white tops. But also the summer with the beach possibilities create beautiful pictures!

If you like to go to a place where there is more tourism, you can go to Laveno (5-minute drive by car, 4 kilometres). In Laveno you can take the ferry to Stresa and Verbania.

In the northern direction you can visit Luino (15 minutes by car, 12 kilometres).The Wednesday market in Luino is world famous.
